How to use the control panel
In the bottom third of the Control Panel screen there are 2 columns of buttons.
On the left column click
"Click to Disable 'Get Windows 10' App"
"Click to Delete Windows 10 Download folders" (this will take several minutes)
"Click to Disable non-critical Windows 10 Settings"
On the right column click
"Click to Prevent Windows 10 Upgrades"
"Click to Delete Windows 10 Programs"
"Click to enable Monitor Mode" (this button may show on the left column)
As you click each button, the 'Yes' will change to 'No' in the upper part of the control panel window indicating the Windows 10 process has been stopped.
You are done. You may close the ControlPanel

Here is how to revert your computer to Windows 7 or Windows 8.1
If it’s been less than a month since you upgraded to Windows 10, you can go back to your previous version of Windows by going to:
Settings > Update & security > Recovery and selecting either Go back to Windows 7 or Go back to Windows 8.1.
Hint - to find Settings, click the start button (lower left corner of your desktop) and you will see the word 'Settings'
This won't affect your personal files, but it will remove any apps you installed after the upgrade to Windows 10
Can I stop this from happening again?
